lyrics

Breathe smoke, breathe dust
There is hope, but not for us
Lie down, give up
No use in love

One by one I want their voices shut off,
history whitewashed
A world where no one cares who lives or who dies,
which rights are denied

Nice and easy they squeeze into line
Theirs is not to reason why
Individual discs in the spine
of a polycephalic snake
Doublespeak keeps meaning eclipsed
as we coil into a pyramid
Nice slave, together we pave
the way for all these mouths to feed

Fair as it gets
Want more for less
The rapture's rejects
breathing down your neck

Breathe smoke, breathe dust
There is hope, but not for us
Lie down, give up
No use in love

One by one I want their voices shut off,
history whitewashed
A world where no one cares which rights are denied,
who lives or who dies.

Not Blood Paint Brooklyn, New York

Not Blood Paint is a theatrically vivid—and sonically intense—four-piece from Bushwick, formed in 2008 by guitarists George Frye and Joe Stratton, bassist Mark Jaynes and drummer Seth Miller.

Musically, it’s a group impossible to pigeonhole, far removed from traditional verse-chorus-verse structures. The songs manifest as detailed stories that worm into the minds of always-shifting narrators.
